I enjoy shooting landscapes, wildlife and other subjects that frequently require a zoom. I already have a Canon EF 70-200mm L but it just isn't quite long enough. I'm currently considering the Canon EF 100-400L, the Sigma 150-500 or the new Tamron 150-600mm to pair with my Canon 5DM2. I'm especially keen to get the lens by Thanksgiving because I'll be travelling for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. I've already ordered the Tamron but it's on what is likely to be an extended back order. If you wanted a versatile zoom lens to go with a Canon 5DM2 what would you choose (and why)? Will all three give me excellent IQ? Should I reconsider my Tamron order? Edit: I guess Sigma is coming out with a new 150-600 sports zoom that sounds pretty nice. I guess the question is would it be worth twice as much as the Tamron if sports and flying birds aren't my primary subjects?
Stokie posted a topic in Stock photography discussion and contributor experienceI've had a Tamron SP AF Di 90mm macro lens for about 6 years and during that time it's produced some brilliant images (on a Canon 5D mk II). However, yesterday, it came up with an error message; "Err1communications between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean the lens contacts" I did as I was told but the error keeps coming up. Anybody had any experience with this sort of thing or will I have to have the lens repaired/replaced? John.
